Contamination Cups

Ceramicist Tamsin van Essen has a fantastic collection of cups that appear to have been infected by different bacteria. She has made deadly microbes into art. It doesn't appear that her work is available for purchase through her web site, but she is currently exhibiting at the Pragu Contemporary Art Festival.

Shown: Cholera, with the "infected" cup next to electron micrographs of the bacterium Vibrio cholerae
